MILLS TEAM’S FALSE HALLIBURTON ATTACK ACHIEVES AN HISTORIC NEW LOW FOR MAINE POLITICS: COTE HAS AND NEVER WOULD ACCEPT MONEY FROM FIRM THAT REFUSED SECURITY RECOMMENDATIONS FROM TROOPS ABOUT ITS PRIVATIZED CHOW HALL IN MOSUL, IRAQ
(Sanford) – Janet Mills’ out-of-state backers, who are funding a $192,000 attack on pro-choice Democrat and decorated combat veteran Adam Cote in the final days of the Maine gubernatorial primary election achieved a new low for Maine politics in their first ad by falsely accusing Cote of having support from the company that ran the chow hall in Mosul, Ir
Heads up, Maine Democrats. There’s a full-fledged mugging in progress.
It comes to us courtesy of Attorney General Janet Mills, who in recent days has gone to great lengths to portray Adam Cote – her strongest opponent in Tuesday’s Democratic gubernatorial primary – as a Republican in donkey’s clothing.

Statement from Adam Cote:
This is outrageous and Maine people shouldn’t stand for it. To have an outside group, no matter who it is, drop $300,000 into a Maine gubernatorial race to attack one candidate, six days before an election, is unprecedented and exactly what people hate about politics.
Janet Mills has had a year to put together and run her own campaign, as have I. We have outraised her and have more support, more contributions, more prominent endorsements from Maine Democrats than she does.
